SAN FRANCISCO – (April 13th, 2009): Good Vibrations (www.goodvibes.com), the legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing accurate information on sexuality and toys for grown-ups, announces their new Ecorotic™ collection just in time for Earth Day.
Said Dr. Carol Queen, Good Vibrations’ staff sexologist and company spokesperson, “Sex is part of our lives, so any issue that concerns us out of the bedroom has implications inside it: if we recycle, buy local produce, watch our carbon use, and think ecologically in other ways, it makes sense to do the same when we make sexual choices. Our well-being and that of the earth are connected, so consider where you can go Ecorotic™!”
The Good Vibrations earth-friendly Ecorotic™ collection offers all-natural and organic products, as well as longer lasting items that have less environmental impact, such as toys made from superior materials and rechargeable vibes. Many sex toys contain phthalates, a plastic softener banned from children's toys, both in the United States and Europe, for toxicity. Good Vibrations believes that if they shouldn't be in children's toys, they shouldn't be in toys for grown-ups either. In 2007, they eliminated all harmful phthalates-containing products from their inventory. Customers can rest assured that all Good Vibrations Ecorotic™ products are safe.
Founded in an ethical culture, Good Vibrations is a socially-conscious business. From vendors with fair labor practices to lubes and toys made with natural or vegan ingredients, Good Vibrations hopes to provide their customers healthy products that are as good for the planet as they are for your sex life.
“What makes sex green?” added Dr. Queen, “In the first place, most people have sex in ways that use the earth’s resources lightly, with a way smaller carbon footprint than taking a drive.” Good Vibrations suggests that even when you use manufactured toys and products, you do it in a “greener,” more healthy and sustainable way:
- Be a “localvore” in bed as well as at the dinner table, using products that were manufactured and acquired nearby rather than being shipped overseas.
- Choose natural materials and organic ingredients.
- Get long-lasting toys that won’t go to the landfill anytime soon.
- Look for items with little, or recyclable, packaging.
